We just got back from Costa Rica - spent 3 nights at this hotel. Breakfast was great, the pool & hot tub and drink selections were great. Dinner could have had more variety. The daily towel creations on our bed was a special touch that thrilled our little girl. All in all a place to definitely visit again.

We absolutely loved this place! They have hot springs to enjoy and great customer service. Not to mention the flowing river behind our room. The people are lovely and everyone seems to care about your happiness. The restaurant has free breakfast for guests every morning which is a delicious plus. 😊

I just returned from my stay at Volcano Lodge. The staff was wonderful, the room was lovely and the view of Arenal when the clouds parted was magical. There are 2 pools and a wonderful therapeutic hot springs on the property. I feel one of the best parts about Volcano Lodge is the restaurant. I was there with a group... More

My wife and I stayed here for vacation. The room was clean, comfortable and inviting. We stayed near the hot springs and the pool as well as Sura restaurant. The atmosphere at the pool, restaurant and the room were great and we had a phenomenal view of the volcano that peeked through our window every morning. This lodge is also... More

This lodge was one of three that I visited while I was in Costa Rica. Out of the three, Volcano Lodge & Springs was thee best in my opinion. The atmosphere is what hooked me in. The room has a patio area that puts the volcano front and center, wildlife that you can hear and see...I am not doing this... More

Great food, reasonably priced, and the accomodations were comfortable. The housekeepers created wonderful fauna and flora shapes out of the towels! The view of Arenal while you walk on the lighted pathways admiring the landscape, or soaking in their thermal water pools, felt like having a little bit of heaven on earth. Very peaceful and restful place. I went in... More

We booked our trip through anywherecostarica.com (highly recommended) and this hotel was booked for us based on our budget and activities planned. We had the best view of the volcano from our room and it could be seen everywhere on the property. It was very calm and serene. The food was great (although for the same price in town you... More

This was our first stop in our trip not knowing what to expect and we were treated like King and Queen. The food was fantastic and the view was unforgettable! The staff is so friendly and helpful. We stayed in Manuel Antonio and the Osa Peninsula and I have to say that La Fortuna was my favorite place to stay.... More

From the fresh tropical juice when we checked in to fantastic services we really enjoyed our stay at the Volcano Lodge and Springs. Staff was so helpful, free breakfast was delicious and the grounds were perfectly landscaped and beautiful. The only thing we wished was better were the massages. We got a couples massage and both thought the masseuses were... More
